This Makes Me Happy - Layout by Tonya Gibbs

Hi everyone, today I wanted to share with you a layout that I created of my newest niece and I.  I finally got to meet her this past weekend, and couldn't wait to add her sweet photo to my album.
My only photo was a small Instagram photo. To keep from over powering the small photos,  I wanted to keep the design simple, yet girly and elegant.    I reached deep into my stash for a few scraps, and some odd and ends products. 
Since the label on the right mentions "...moment with you"   I decided to frame a Prima Romance Novel Clock inside a Prima Resin Frame. Then flanked it with soft Prima Roses.  It still needed a little something so I went DEEP into the hoard vault and pulled out a Say It in Pearls spray and framed it around the flower cluster.   I wanted my journaling to blend into the layout, so I wrote it along the boarder with a pink pen from Zig.
Sometimes the simplest projects are really the most powerful.  I challenge you this week to make a layout with a small photo, and keep it simple.  Share your samples with me on Artsy Addicts Facebook page.
Thanks for stopping in today,
Tonya Gibbs
